From time to time, we end up with collections of old photos. It can be depressing to buy up someone else's family history–all those long dead and nearly forgotten faces staring blanking from carte-de-viste photographs and cabinet cards. We adopt them hoping someone else will eventually give them a good home. We have at least […]

You never know what's going to walk in the front door here at Eureka Books. Today we bought a nice 5th edition (second state, for those who like minutiae) of The Wizard of Oz, dating from about 1925. It has been protected by a reproduction dust jacket, so the book itself if very clean […]
Along with the Wizard of Oz book mentioned above, we also picked up a nice Salvador Dali etching of Don Quixote. It's not a great rarity, but it is a nice, classic image from the Spanish surrealist.
Shelf Awareness, the e-newsletter for booksellers, sent a reporter to Eureka last week for an interview. (Okay, she happened to be driving through anyway on her way to someplace else. The point is, we're just happy to be on the way to somewhere.) Here's the story–scroll down about halfway–and if you're local, know that the […]
Not book related, but Dan Barry's story about Humboldt Creamery for the New York Times may be the best story I've ever read about life here in Humboldt County.
Mel (at bottom of picture) from Curley's Grill, dished up their famous Caesar Salad as fast as she could to feed the hordes out on Wednesday night for the 17th Annual Taste of Main Street.
Congratulations to Linda Mitchell, a local artist and friend of the store, for winning Best in Show at the Redwood Art Association exhibition at the Morris Graves Museum of Art. Linda's winning painting is of Eureka Books' grand re-opening, held to celebrate our purchase of the store in 2007.
Shelf Awareness, the daily free email blast for the publishing world, ran this photo of Humboldt's finest children's book authors – Natasha Wing, Mary Nethery, and Barbara Kerley. Shelf Awareness even gave Eureka Books credit for publishing the books. That's a job we'd love to hold (if we knew anything about publishing), but Natasha, Mary, […]
…if you're a bookseller. Or this could be titled "How I spent my weekend…" Just remember, we do it for you, our customers.
On Saturday (March 7, 2009), we had an opening for Augustus "Gus" Clark, a prolific and much-loved Humboldt County painter. He's been making "books" for years by laying loose sheets between heavy boards. They are really quite something, and the public response last night was incredible. At first people weren't sure what to make of […]
